    20 yr old, speed, not holding his lane....hmmmm and they want to let 18 yr olds drive interstate with a CDL? Dumb idea.
    RIP Oakhurst driver

    Yeah, because 21+ old truck drivers don’t kill people out on the highways every single day.

    Police say Nicholas Cota, 20, of Greenfield Township was driving a Freightliner tractor-trailer westbound on Route 9 and crashed into a three-axle box truck hauling Oakhurst milk, which was traveling east.

    Ummmmm.......tell me again why this is a good idea????

    Well when you put it that way, people of all ages kill people on the road as well. May as well make it 16 yrs old to get a CDL and call it good. :rolleyes:

    Seriously though, even though 21 is still young, I believe developmentally there is a maturity difference between an 18 and 21 yr old.

    What are the chances that the deviating truck just didn't just go off into the ditch without some vehicle in it's path?

    We see things that seemingly just "went into the ditch" all the time...

    Very true...it’s unfortunate that all anyone sees are the ones who screw up and wreck or kill someone else. The good drivers just fly under the radar doing their thing...no one notices
